So I got my 5lb Let and decided to put it to use. I made 10 pounds of Faccett's breakfast sausage with slight modifications. Added granulated garlic, red pepper flakes and some maple syrup. I also added 8 ounces of water. Ground 2 times with a 5/16" plate 3/4" stuffer tube with 32/35mm hot casings. Turning the crank on the stuffer was a pita. I was struggling. I probably need to bolt the stuffer to a board to help stabilize it, and maybe more water? By the time I got done with the ten pounds I was really discouraged and really questioning my sanity for wanting to get into stuffing sausage. Today I enjoyed my hard work and have a better outlook, but I have to get it figured out. I thought the sausage was good, but I think I stuffed them a little tight. Maybe mixed too long as well. I see a lot of recipes call for 16 ounces of water for 10 pounds and will try to mix less, along with not stuffing so tight and adding a base to my stuffer. Any other tips would be helpful. Thank you.
